Hi Yeganeh!
As a student here for about a year now I will tell you what places i have been. For me the best place to start is Madurodam in the Hague. This place show the Netherlands in a small scale. Its like a mini Netherlands. If you go there you will get a book with all the 'famous' places around the country and their history. In Rotterdam is Erasmusbrug (a hugee brigde where you can take amazing photos) and Markthal (in Blaak) a must! I also like to visit the central station since the building is really cool ahahah . Rotterdam is more like a city with really cool buildings. Since you are coming on a Saturday you can also check the Markt in Blaak where the sell fresh veggies and other things :)
As for clubs.. I am more into Bachata merengue salsa stuff but if you want to experience the Dutch culture go to a club called Skihut where the Dutch people like to party! Nearby are also a lot of other clubs where you can dance or drink something.
Also if you got time.. Visit Amsterdam! The city is just unique!
If you have any question I'll happy to answer them
Have a nice day(and possibly trip)

Hey, Guys!

I just moved to the Hague from Denmark. I am wondering would any of you have any advice picking a good gym around the city? I am looking something with reasonable prices. :) Thanks! Also, I am still looking for a bike :D
Cheers,
Sandra

Hey Sandra (sveika ;] ),

There's quite a nice gym at the Babylon, around 30 euro per month and does not require to sign a long-term contract (both fitforfree and basicfit require at least a year I think) :) http://www.healthworks.eu/vestiging/den-haag

And a very cool yoga studio, unlimited classes for 72 euro per month for students, if you're feeling like a splurge :) http://www.balanzs.nl/prijzen

Hi,
I will go to Den Haag in May to take some kitesurfing lessons.
I will probably stay a week or so.

What else fun is there in Den Haag, excepts for kitesurfing?

I would appreciate local advice for non tourist stuff and Den Haags hidden secrets :-)

kind regards

Lenna , Rijswijk, NLD, 2 months ago

No fun in the Hague, we've got our government settled here :))

Bo-Peter Laanen , The Hague, NLD, 2 months ago

Hi Terje,

There is lots to do in the Hague, though I can't say I know the best non-touristy secrets, but I can tell you some things here. To start, I recommend checking out http://denhaag.com/en/, there you will find all of the events and performances going on throughout the Hague. There's always something going on!

If you want to catch a drink, you'll find many places along the beach, but if you go to the city center the two main areas at The Plein (plein means public square in essence) and the Grote Markt. There are also alot of cool bars in the Noord Einde area.

Besides that, the Netherlands is a very museum and park dense country, and that counts for the Hague as well. Some of my favorites are the Escher Museum and the Mauritshuis. Movie theaters, of which there are three in the Hague, are generally in English with Dutch subtitles.

I hope that gives you enough to do for a week!

Cheers, and enjoy your time.

Alex FromRio , The Hague, NLD, about 2 months ago

The Dutch government is annoying indeed, but as a tourist, you don't need to bother about them.

I love to take my guests to De Haagse markt, especially to eat fish and buy fresh fruits.

But since May is still a whole ice age away, I'd say send some couch requests not earlier than 2 weeks before and you'll probably find a nice host. I have the impression The Hague is not as a nightmare as Amsterdam when it comes to finding a host.

Hi I really need your advice ! I am looking for cheap hotel in Rotterdam .. So if you have any idea let me now please !

Megulver Edhardt , Rotterdam, NLD, 2 months ago

What is cheap for you?

Bryan Leerintveld , Breda, NLD, 2 months ago

Not known in rotterdam.. If you want to stay in Breda, contact me. good luck

Bart Driessen , Rotterdam, NLD, 2 months ago

There is the Ani & Haakien hostel and King Kong hostel. Real hotels are much more expensive. Bazar Hotel is simple but nice and one of the cheapest in the center. But why not use Airbnb (can be cheaper than a hotel) or ask for a couch?
